When traveling, the constant sitting and general lack of movement can lead to back pain. This is especially true if your plans include traveling far, with hours and hours spent in the car, on the bus, or on a plane. 

Because the body needs movement, stretching, and general activity, this constant sitting can cause stiffness, restrictions in the vertebrae, and eventual pain. If you are far from home and find yourself looking for a chiropractor in an unfamiliar place, here are some helpful tips to narrow down your search.

1) Find Notable, Licensed Professionals in the Area

When in an unfamiliar place, it can be hard to find a licensed professional with a strong reputation. Search online to find professionals you can trust in the area you’re traveling in. 

If you have a doctor, it may be useful to ask them for a referral to a chiropractor. They may be able to give you a good recommendation. However, it’s important to note that your insurance may not cover your treatment if you go to a chiropractor as a result of a referral from your doctor. 

2) Schedule a Consultation With Chiropractors in the Area

When you’ve narrowed down your search, take the time to schedule a consultation. This is a free appointment where you can sit down with the chiropractor and discuss your needs and ask any questions you might have. It’s important to be open and honest during this consultation so that the chiropractor can properly assess your situation.

During your consultation, the chiropractor will likely conduct an evaluation. This may include a physical examination, taking your health history, and talking about your symptoms. The evaluation will help the chiropractor develop a treatment plan for you.

3) Find a Local Chiropractor Offering Soft Tissue Management

Soft tissue management is a conservative approach to treating pain. It involves the use of different modalities, such as massage, to relax and stretch the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. This can help to relieve pain and improve range of motion.

4) Make Sure They Have Insurance Coverage

Many insurance plans cover chiropractic services. Before going to a chiropractor outside of your hometown, be sure to check with your provider to see if you have coverage in their areas. If you are traveling to a different country, it may be difficult to find one covered by your insurance. Make sure you consult with your provider before the trip.

Many chiropractors also offer payment plans to make treatment more affordable. There are also many free or low-cost clinics that offer chiropractic care. You can search online or ask your local health department for a list of these clinics in your area.

5) Prioritize Convenience

You won’t have a shortage of chiropractic clinics on your travels. Chiropractic clinics are located in most cities and towns across the country, and most offices offer evening and weekend hours. Most insurance plans cover chiropractic care and many chiropractors accept Medicare.

Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, drug-free approach to health care that includes the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems. Chiropractors use adjustments to restore normal alignment and motion to the spine and other joints of the body. This can relieve pain, improve function, and prevent further injury.
